EU Shark Rally Newsletter Issue 5

Date: July 1, 2021

Here you can find the latest issue of the EU Shark Rally Newsletter.  We’re pleased to announce the first EU Member State to back the ICCAT scientific advise to prohibit the retention of makos in the North Atlantic and become our first EU Mako Champion…check out the newsletter to find out who it is! And…we’ve just released the Voices for Makos video showcasing EU citizens, politicians, scientists, divers, aquariums voice their support for the science as well.

Yet, the EU continues to promote retention of mako, in spite of the scientific advice for a prohibition of retention, no exceptions. So we need your voice now more than ever! As the ICCAT intersessional meeting approaches, please join the #Rally4Makos and urge the EU Commission to change their position.

3 Actions You Can Take This Week for Makos:

  1. Use your voice for makos by using this Click to Tweet and #Rally4Makos hashtag.
  2. Spread the word and share the Voices for Makos video on social media.
  3. Send an email to your Fisheries Minister calling on them to take action in support of this imperilled shark.
